Hello everyone,
I have 2 Great-grandmothers >from Czechoslovakia. Their
first names are Jutte and Kunegunda.
The name Jutte (usually spelt Juta in Polish, and pronounced Yi-te)
was (and maybe still is) a commonly used Jewish female name. There
are hundreds of instances in the Polish records, and in Jewish books
recording Polish Jews.

The term "scholarship" is misleaeding. The "higher criticism" is
based mostly on texutual analysis. Some of the claims made by this
"modern scholarship" have already been demolished by archaologists.
Alter makes a compelling case against some other claims.

Hi Myra -

The forms used were periodically changed - so you'll need to find
someone who either knows exactly when the forms changed, or someone
with a page >from the same month and year, to know what the format was.
I would also suggest checking out the NARA website - perhaps they have
a description of the forms used in 1906. The ones I have are >from
1904 and 1921 and the column headings are somewhat different.

Re: Route to America question #general

He is originally >from Sudilkov, Ukraine. Does
anyone have thoughts on how he would have

a major rail-line) to Glasgow?
Glasgow and Hamburg were the two main shipping docs for large(er) ships. In
Crossing and Cruising John Maxton-Graham explains the technical reasons for
these two ports to become the clearing house of many immigration paths to
America, South America, Africa and the Middle east.

Often trains would bring immigrants to these port cities (Hamburg) or a
short ride by ship would bring'em to Glasgow where they would start - a
few days' later - a 2-3 weeks' trip to Philadelphia, New York or
Galveston, TX.

Schlein family of Brooklyn, NY #general

bdavis@...
 

I would be grateful for any information about the family of Rachel
BLATT, born about 1870 in "Russia", who married a Mr SCHLEIN. They
both died in Brooklyn, NY. No idea when (sorry!). Children were
Irene, Jack (?Jacob), Dora, and Minnie, who would probably be
grandparents by now.

Rachel was a sister of my mother's father (i.e. my great-aunt).

Thank you
